โ€œI watched Sex and the City non-stop and on permanent repeat since its premiere in โ€™98, hopelessly taken with its portrayal of literary New York.โ€

Given that Joanna is barely thirty, I have my doubts that she was really watching this show right from the start, when she was a little child, unless her parents had HBO and were very permissible.

I saw the show as a teen because my dad got HBO to watch The Sopranos, so I saw it both on HBO and the edited reruns on TBS. I liked the show, but more so in the early seasons when it reminded me of 90โ€™s indie romantic comedies, not so much when it got swept up in its own hype. And I liked it when it got more serious, like dealing with cancer or infertility. Just not when it got really ridiculous and campy.
